Life Guard Square nos. 6 - 14
1958 View looks from Bull Ring Road into one corner of Life Guard Square. Numbers 14 and 12, on the left edge, face towards the road, moving right numbers 10 to 6 are set at right angles. A rough grassy area can be seen in the centre of the square. William Benn, in his 1926 book 'Wortley-de-Leeds' states, 'Life Guard Square, it is said, has got its name from the little men who lived there at a certain time. It is unclear, however about the identity and significance of these 'little men'. These houses were demolished during a citywide slum clearance programme.
